Famous old flea market in Barcelona
You are tired of all those new shopping malls and you are looking for something unique from the past?
We have the solution for you ;-) ; the old flea market Mercat Fira de Bellcaire also known as El Encants in Barcelona near to Torre Agbar and Glóries.
This market is the biggest market in Barcelona and is famous, since it already is located there since the 14th Century. El Encants belongs to one of the oldest markets in Europe.
Today the market is divided in two parts, as a newer area was build under a distinctive deck. Commercial activity is supposed to take place there, like offices and restaurants. The actual old flea market still takes places outside. However, the new building isn’t closed like a house. Therefore, it is possible to keep a feeling of openness and combining both parts.
